A broad WSWerly upper jetstream running from the Iberian Peninsula over central Europe and Russia divides the forecast area into two regimes: the large low pressure area in the cool airmass with deepest instability found near its Baltic-Finnish-Russian center, and a warm humid airmass found south of the marked cold front that stretches from central France, southern Germany into the western Ukraine.
...coastal regions of SE North Sea, Kattegat, Baltic Sea...
Relatively shallow-topped convection without much chance of thunder (except in the east) is predicted by GFS over this area, with good 0-3 km CAPE over sea, apparently due to very steep near-surface lapse rates of 17-20 K/km. 00Z Ekofisk sounding confirms very cool airmass advects southeastward encountering much warmer surface waters. Although descending QG tendency may limit degree of coverage, isolated showers and especially any lines thereof have a relatively high potential of producing waterspouts.
00Z soundings of Emden and Leba show already critical conditions for spout development, including weak surface winds, strong low level CAPE and very moist profiles. It cannot be excluded that some spouts may occur outside the drawn regions. Conditions appear to improve towards the next morning and persist more or less through the next several days over the Baltic Sea.
